Computing a t-test using AGE as the independent variable and CSSE (Current statistics self-efficacy) as the dependent measure. We know from research that age 37 is a good cutpoint for our AGE variable. Use tables below to answer the questions.

Note:

¨ Levenes equality of variance tests: a significance value larger than 0.05 is good.

This means the variances for groups DO NOT differ from each other.

1. What      is Levenes equality of variance tests significance?
2. What      is the value of t when      variances are equal? What about unequal?
3. Is      either value of t      significant?
